Heart Gifts

I sure have been draggy today, haven't felt good, yet haven't felt bad either. 
I feel like I'm stuck somewhere in the middle.

Taking an easy route for my post today.
I just looked up a poem by
Helen Steiner Rice
for you to enjoy.

"Heart Gifts"
Helen Steiner Rice

It's not the things that can be bought
that are life's richest treasure,
it's just the little heart gifts
that money cannot measure....

A cheerful smile, a friendly word,
a sympathetic nod
are priceless little treasures
from the storehouse of our God....

They are the things that can't be bought
with silver or with gold,
for thoughtfulness and kindness
and love are never sold....

They are the priceless things in life
for which no one can pay,
and the giver finds rich recompense
in giving them away.

      Jesus said to him, “If you would be perfect, go, sell what you possess and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow me.”
Matthew 19:21

Until Next Time
